Hi, friends! I'm Rachel Richard from Rachel Richard Photography. I'm a Wedding and Engagement Photographer/Love Story Teller from Indiana. I’ve always been drawn to epic stories - stories told through novels, on the silver screen, through song lyrics and especially through photographs. Moments have meaning. They hold everyday love stories that are begging to be told.
I want the way that I approach wedding and engagement photography to make the viewer watch with baited breath as if something holy was unfolding before them. I want you to remember how it felt to be held in your fiancé’s arms, to remember the words they whispered in your ear and that intense racing heartbeat you felt deep inside your chest.
These moments aren’t fancy or staged. Many of them are quiet and unfettered by glamorous surroundings or activities. But make no mistake… They ARE extraordinary moments.
“Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.”
― David Alan Harvey
My focus is real, lasting, everyday, ordinary love. I capture feelings for future generations to witness. They’ll be able to hold a photograph of their parents or grandparents up and say, “This… This is where I come from. I’m here because of their legacy of love.”
Wedding days are important to me but beautiful, healthy marriages are even better. Long after the guests are gone and the cake has been eaten, you’ll have each other and you’ll have photographs. And when the hard days come, because undoubtedly they will, you’ll be able to look back at your photos and you’ll be able to remind yourselves what you are fighting for. That this is where your relationship began. This is where your marriage was born. That this was the start of your own legacy of love.
…great marriages are more important than great weddings.
…real love doesn’t just exist in fairytales. It can happen in real life, too.
…real love is hard work but very much worth the effort.
…couples who are true best friends at the core of their relationship an survive anything when hard times come.
…couples who love and serve each other well are inspirational.
…couples who encourage, respect and see the best in each other can change the world.
…dating and flirting with your mate shouldn’t end after the wedding.
…marriage maintenance is a must.
…mutual weirdness and laughter can spice up a relationship.
…everyone one of us can love and be loved.
